Hollywood walked the red carpet last night as awards season kicked off with the 77th Annual Golden Globes Awards. As is often the case, celebrities brought out the best looks their stylists could put together to try to turn heads as they entered the show. Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts for Marvel Studios, attended the event on behalf of her Netflix series The Politician. She had an eye-catching look, though the response to her standout dress may not have been what she hoped if online reactions are anything to go by.
Paltrow attended the event in what is being called a "naked" dress from the Fendi pre-fall 2020 collection. It's an airy gown made of brown, sheer tulle, meaning most of it can is see-through.
"She's naked in the most beautiful way," Elizabeth Saltzman, Paltrow's stylist, told The Hollywood Reporter. "That café au lait-color on her sun-kissed body is like, 'Wow!' She's not saying, 'Look at me.' It's a person saying 'I'm comfortable in my skin, inside and out. [The dress] is not wearing her in any way, shape or form.'"
Saltzman says she presented Paltrow with different options for her Golden Globes look, but the "naked" dress is the one that excited her. Online critics had mixed responses about whether it was the correct choice. Some feel like she made the wrong choice by taking an on-the-runway fashion look off the runway. Others feel like it was it a bold choice as the 47-year-old actress was also letting the graying roots of her hair show. Others feel like the dress is fine in theory, but take issue with the colors and execution.
